Looking for something to pass the time? We’ve got you covered.
Whether you’re an avid explorer of the digital landscape or simply looking for an interesting way to fill up your break time in between checking your phone for spyware and watching Youtube, these apps can provide all you need. Ranging from a quick laugh to downright life-saving, below are some of the strangest activities and their associated applications, normally available on both android and iOS.
10. Beer simulator
To the ones who never want to be left out, this app can save you from some truly awkward situations. Whether at a bar or lounging around the house with friends, simply pull out your phone, load up the Beer Simulator and knock back your brewski (phone) to drain the virtual beer and hopefully catch a couple of laughs on the way down.
9. Demotivational Pics
In stark opposition to good self-esteem, Demotivational Pics allows the user to knock themselves down a couple of pegs by reading through such demotivational comments as:
“You may not be useless because you can still be used as a bad example”
Truly the app for the masochists who want to make themselves feel bad, even on a good day.
8. Poop Map
There’s… not really much more to the app than the title already gives away. Poop Map allows those who wish to mark their territory to make their fecal records publicly available and, on top of this, track the movements of any friends who dare link up their profiles.
7. Digital gambling websites
As the world digitizes and evolves, so does the way we do our favorite activities. Online casinos are becoming synonymous with gambling as a whole, providing users with the ability to engage with the most popular casino games wherever and whenever they want through the internet.
6. Treadmill Finger Workout
In the day and age of the office job, exercise is vital to our well being as members of society. Simulated finger exercise, however, I can’t be so sure of on a scale of importance. Regardless, Treadmill Finger Workout allows anyone to have their fingers ‘run’ along a moving, digital treadmill, hopefully postponing any cases of RSI on their way!
5. Pimple popper
Real pimples can cause viral infection or even death if popped. Virtual pimples, disgusting as they may be created to be, simply provide the end-user with an interesting form of digital fidget, oftentimes turned into an actual game with potential for high scores and design elements.
4. Hold the button
The subject of online challenges and an interesting social experiment overall, Hold the Button is as simple as a ‘game’ can be: don’t let go of the button. The longest timed hold sets a record, currently 86 hours, and can provide an interesting competition between friends, packed with treachery and betrayal.
3. Fake call app
Ever wanted a way out for a really awkward ,or even potentially dangerous conversation? Fake Call provides not only a method to call yourself in a believable manner, but provides the voice instruction on pickup and feedback to make a call seem genuine, dispelling disbelief and buying a few extra precious moments to escape the situation.
Walking through a dense city leaves one with a sense of vertigo and wonder. Just what are all these buildings and landmarks for? Wikitude provides an augmented-reality service accessible via a phone browser app that scans the current objects in view of the camera and attempts to provide more in-depth information about them, a fantastic insight for trivia-lovers.
That’s right. Nothing. Although anti-climactic, Nothing is an app that does exactly what is labeled on the tin, and, for that reason, can be viewed as a sort of bold metaphor or a reflection on capitalistic habits. No service, no hidden features, no communication framework; the app itself opens up to a blank screen with only the app’s title in the center; nothing. This doesn’t stop the creators from offering a premium version for only 0.99c
Although this list alone may not quell your thirst for something to occupy you, hopefully some of these apps do! Even Nothing can provide at least a quick laugh or an interesting conversation starter during the lunch break.
